All-Star race features big name dignitaries

(Charlotte Motor Speedway) (Charlotte Motor Speedway)

Charlotte Motor Speedway is ready to take the racing spotlight for the next two weeks. 

First up is All-Star Saturday, which provides a lot of electricity with drivers going side by side for a million-dollar payday. As if the racing is not enough to lure you to this year’s event, Speedway officials have loaded pre-race activities with some pretty big name dignitaries.

NASCAR owner Joe Gibbs, who already has three cars in the All-Star Race, will provide the invocation. Award-winning rapper and actor Machine Gun Kelly will serve as Grand Marshal. And the honorary pace car driver will be champion mixed martial artist Rampage Jackson.

Those are just a few of the big names that will be featured at one of the most popular All-Star events in all of sports.
